REGGAE originated in the former Caribbean slave plantation of Jamaica and to date, is the only form of popular music that has a former colony at its centre, addresses issues of colonialism and opposes the Euro-centric Babylonian world order, while at the same time enjoying immense popularity all over the world. You might have heard Reggae music before, but never like this. Most Reggae music is intended not for private consumption on headphones or home systems, but for communal listening sessions on giant custom made sound systems. This is how the music should be heard and felt.
REGGAE SOUND SYSTEM lends immense power to the music and has the ability to literally vibrate bodies and objects in its surrounding. What is of the essence is not loudness, but the warm physical sensation of bass frequencies, engulfing you and those around you. Music becomes a physical and collective experience.
